"Four years after seeing this work performed, I still find the force of this play startling… I have spent my life thinking about Shakespeare, but that did not prepare me for the depth of thinking and feeling that (his) performance provoked." - Michael Witmore, Director of The Folger Shakespeare Library

"This deep-from-the-heart spellbinder by Keith Hamilton Cobb is a blisteringly eloquent and penetrating meditation on the ever-urgent matter of race in America." - Don Aucoin, Boston Globe

"Cobb's energy is unflagging, and his pace unrelenting; he fills the room with movement, energy, and sheer vital presence." - Killian Malloy, Edge Media Network, Boston
